of the badgering done in person or over the air waves impacted early voting. here in columbus, the line stretched out of the door and in the parking lot and people waited in line for two hours to cast a ballot. some of the churches loaded up people on buss and drove them to early voting location. and spokesman said this is resulting in a big surge for president obama. and that is why they fought so hard to keep early voting open in the final weekend leading up to the election here in ohio. associated press reported republicans and democrats, democrats lead by six percent. we can show you video of the absentee ballots and republican response to that. spokesman said they anticipated all along that democrats would lead with early voting, however, the lead is not significant as it was in the last election. they say viewer democrats showed up for early vote more republicans showed up. both sides are predicting a narrow margin of victory and lawyered up have observers here in the polling locations. and every vote counts and every vote will be scrutinized. >> steve: thank you for the live report. everyb

costello in columbus, ohio. it looks a little cold this morning, carol. >> reporter: it is pretty cold, but i'm telling you people here in ohio are happy, john, because ohio's long election night is finally over. now when they watch television they can see cheesy car commercials and they are very, very happy about that. what issue was it that won ohio for obama? it was the auto industry bailout. people here, especially in the northern and upper half of the state, supported the auto industry because many of them work in the auto industry. they think the bailout helped save their jobs. and talking about attack ads, can you issue one attack ad too many? i think so. and i think the election in ohio proved that. the romney campaign released that ad and judd avalon knows about that saying they are going to move jobs. a lot of voters didn't like being lied to in that particular way. a lot of voters told me that's why they voted. ohio put obama over the top and was a deciding state once again. >> everyone was so concerned about the provisional ballots, would they keep this election hanging on

cleveland. tend to do well in the middle part of the street, franklin county, that is columbus. in the southwestern part of the state this will be a surprise to the republican party not only in hamilton county, cincinnati but also a republican party across the state. this is the county that they wanted to make blue and make it red again. had not been blue until 1964, it was reliably republican territory. but you lose votes down here when you don't win the county. the other area i want to point out is these are strong republican areas up in warren county. mitt romney did really well, 69% of the vote in that county alone. go back to 2004. you want to see what you need to win that state now? if president bush was at 72%. in a close race like this 2 and 3 points in counties like that can make the difference. mike tobin is live in columbus yet again this morning. mike, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, bill. if you want to look for a cause you can boil it down or simplify it to two words, auto bailout. and to back that up let's look at some of what we got from the exit poll.

are pushed down to the road and they never materialize. i was in columbus, ohio, during the campaign. there's an amazing guy, the mayor of columbus, a long-term democrat, and he's done a deal on finances. when the crisis hit, he cut as much as he could in the back office, things people didn't see. he hadn't cut enough. sew went to the business community and said i can carry on cutting. i can put police services, park services, things that will actually affect the city of people's desire to live here, or we can have a revenue hike. and because he had already done the cuts in the back office and he could lay them out, the business community 100% supported a revenue hike. it was a really interesting model in one city. okay, it's one city. it's not the country, but it's an interesting model of how you can use cuts. >> i wasn't going to object what you said, i was going tack to what michael said. i don't sense the republicans saying they're flexible on rates. they keep saying we cannot increase marginal rates. we cannot increase marginal rates. donnie repeated the warren buffett point which is a
